Narges Nekooei: Narges was born in Iran. Ever since she can remember, her parents saw her inherent inclination to read and gave her lots of books.

She was accepted in the most prestigious law school in Iran. Narges realized that she has a long path before her. Concurrent to getting admitted in Tehran University for her LLM in International Law, she surpassed others in the Central Bar Association exam and started her internship.
